1. Prior to installation, examine all boxes and packages for shipping damage and compare the
piece count with your packing slip. After opening all boxes and packages read this
introduction carefully. Check that all of the needed parts are included in the package by
checking off the components on the Detailed Diagram of Shower Door Components. If the
unit has been damaged, has a finishing defect, or has missing parts, please contact our
customer support department within 3 business days of the delivery date. Please note that
DreamLine will not replace any damaged products or missing parts free of charge after
3 business days or if the product has been installed. Feel free to contact DreamLine if you

2. If this unit is going to be installed in a new construction, install all of the required plumbing
and drainage before installing the shower. Use a competent and licensed (if required by
local code) plumber for all plumbing installation.
3. Please note that you should consult your local building codes with questions about
installation compliance standards. Building and plumbing codes may vary by location,
and DreamLine is not responsible for code compliance standards for your project and
will not accept any returns.
4. Please make sure that prior to beginning the installation, the surfaces are leveled and solid and
will be able to support the total weight of the unit. Also make sure the walls are at right angles.
Irregular installation surface level, radius corners or improper angle of side walls will result in
serious problems for your installation. Please note that some adjustments and drilling may be
necessary during the installation process.
5. Please protect all primary surfaces of the product during installation. Never set your glass
down directly onto a tile floor. Leave corner protectors in place until necessary to remove them.
Always use a piece of wood or cardboard to protect the bottom edge and corners of the glass
prior to and during installation.
